Solstice depicts five figures, each with its arms in a different position. When viewed head-on, the five different arm positions layer into a fan around the figure. This pose could represent the passing of the seasons from warm to cold, from summer to winter, or from sunny to dark, with the central figure with arms extended representing the equinox.
